Spain reopens borders for immunized tourists;  Brazil out |  The world

A Spain Boundaries for tourists from all over the world who have been vaccinated against Kovid-19 will be reopened from this Monday (7).

The vaccine is approved by the European Union or the World Health Organization (WHO) and the last dose is taken at least 14 days.

However, passengers from this size are not included Brazil, Which is considered a “special epidemiological risk” (as in South Africa).

Decision to allow immunizations to enter Spain Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced Mail. He said the move would apply to citizens of any country, which has created false expectations about the Brazilian release.

But, At a cabinet meeting on the first day, the Spanish government decided to extend the restrictions already in place for Brazil.

Flights from the country can only carry citizens of Spain or Andorra or legal residents and can only carry passengers traveling less than 24 hours at the airport.

South Africa has similar restrictions. Passengers from India, another country with the highest incidence of the disease, can enter the country as far as possible subject to the embargo.

The Spanish government intends to resume tourism in the northern hemisphere during the summer, which accounts for a large portion of the region’s annual revenue, which runs from June to September.

Warm Spain is a popular tourist destination for European tourists due to its warm climate, rich beaches and rich and diverse culture. It mainly attracts Englishmen, Germans and Frenchmen.

By 2020, the number of foreigners entering the country has dropped by about 80%. Domestic tourism also imposed restrictions on mobility. The share of this sector, which is projected to reach 13 per cent of GDP in 2019, fell to just 4 per cent last year.

The collapse caused injuries as many companies suspended the employment contracts of many workers or closed their doors. For this year, the government estimates that recruitment in this sector will be partially recovered and reach 50% of the 2019 level.

‘Vaccination Passport’

To that end, the contribution of the Green Digital Certificate, a document proposed by the European Commission to restore freedom of movement, must be contributed. The pass, which is expected to take effect on July 1, will be generous and will allow for the inclusion of three types of certification: vaccination, the result of a recent antigen or PCR test, and bypassing Covid-19 certificates. For residents of hazardous countries in the European Union or the Schengen area, any of these requirements is sufficient to enter Spain.

The return of cruises The entry of international cruises, which have been banned since March 2020, is now allowed again. Prior to the outbreak, the country was the second most popular destination for these ships in the world.

In addition, the government used a tactic to resume the number of British visitors. Thanks to the immunization program, the United Kingdom has helped significantly reduce the number of Kovid-19s, which are considered safe on the list of nine other countries outside the European Union. This means that travel from these places can take place without restrictions and does not even require a vaccination certificate.

The main target of the Prime Minister ‘s speech at the Tourism Fair was the British, and he announced measures to restart the region this summer. After saying in Spanish that the country would be happy to welcome tourists from the United Kingdom, Sanchez repeated the same sentence in English. In his opinion, the goal was to get the message clearly in the international media.

Spain is trying to attract the British, however, and Boris Johnson’s government continues to keep Spain on a moderate risk list for travel. With this, anyone who decides to spend a holiday in the country will have to comply with the mandatory shipping ban when returning to the UK.

The Spaniards have repeatedly requested the British government to review this risk rating for the country as a whole or for certain areas, such as the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands. In addition, experts expect 2021 to be another year of significant losses in tourism.

Spain is one of the most affected European countries, but the situation today is much less than it was a few months ago. The average incidence of Kovid-19, which exceeded 1,000 cases per lakh residents in January, is now 130 cases per lakh residents. The percentage of the population with a complete immunization schedule reaches about 22%, and another 40% have already taken the first dose of the vaccine. The official official estimate is that 70% of adults will be vaccinated by the end of August.
